We still don’t know exactly what led to Neville leaving WWE abruptly back in October of last year but his last program involved Enzo Amore showing up in the cruiserweight division and taking the title from him. He was reportedly scheduled to win it back when he walked out of Monday Night Raw and has not returned.
One person who would like to see him back? Enzo himself, who had nothing but high praise for Neville in a recent interview with The Sun:
“Neville is one of my favorite pros in the business. He carried NXT with that title and was a tag-team champion there. Then he worked the 205 division with the hardest schedule in silence, he was working Friday, Saturday and Sunday and then Mondays and Tuesdays. When guys were catching red-eye flights from the west coast after Raw, Neville was driving on to the next town or taking an early morning flight. It’s the hardest schedule in pro wrestling because you are closing out 205 [Live] at the end of the week. I hope Neville comes back and we feud. I have never seen a guy work like he does.”
Neville is indeed an incredibly talented wrestler who had one hell of a run as a big shark in a little pond on 205 Live. There was some talk late last year that he could be coming back soon but there hasn’t been much hint of that as of late.
Enzo will just have to do like the rest of us and stay tuned.
